And in their proper element, on the game board. Interesting that Menelaos is classically Greek but his shield design is Roman legionary in style. In general, I dislike raised shield designs for hoplites as well as raised herarldy for knights as it really limits their utility for representing anything beyond the one figure. But for these more symbolic figures, it's just fine and makes them easier to paint.
Now working on the mounted figure of Patroclus, then on to Odysseus and Hermes.
Looking fabulous. How many are there to do?ReplyDelete
About 40. ;-) If you can muster the patience to paint hundreds of Ptolemaic phalangites, I should be able to be able to concentrate long enough to finish these. Then again, my track record in that regard is not a good one.
Phew... I can just rattle the Phalangites out, but there is a lot of work in those flats of yours!ReplyDelete
Unusual and very, very nice! I really like the colours!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Phil. Yes, this set is something a bit out of the ordinary. There was another with figures depicting the Wagnerian Ring cycle but I haven't seen it.ReplyDelete
